  For OSPF on PtP network, BIRD now sends all packets to multicast AllSPFRouters
  address (as required in RFC 2328 8.1). This likely breaks setups with multiple
  neighbors on a network configured as PtP, which worked in previous versions.
  Such links should be configured as PtMP.

  Since Linux 5.3, netlink socket can be flooded by route cache entries during
  route table scan. This version mitigates that issue by using strict netlink
  filtering.

Version 2.0.8 (2021-03-18)
  o Automatic channel reloads based on RPKI changes
  o Multiple static routes with the same network
  o Use bitmaps to keep track of exported routes
  o Per-channel debug flags
  o CLI commands show info from multiple protocols
  o Linux: IPv4 routes with IPv6 nexthops
  o Filter: Optimized redesign of prefix sets
  o Filter: Improved type checking of user filters
  o Filter: New src/dst accessors for Flowspec and SADR
  o Filter: New 'weight' route attribute
  o Filter: BGP path mask loop operator
  o Filter: Remove quitbird command
  o RIP: Demand circuit support (RFC 2091)
  o BGP: New 'allow as sets' and 'enforce first as' options
  o BGP: Support for BGP hostname capability
  o BGP: Support for MD5SIG with dynamic BGP
  o BFD: Optional separation of IPv4 / IPv6 BFD instances
  o BFD: Per-peer session options
  o RPKI: Allow build without libSSH
  o RPKI: New 'ignore max length' option
  o OSPF: Redesign of handling of unnumbered PtPs
  o OSPF: Allow key id 0 in authentication
  o Babel: Use onlink flag for routes with unreachable next hop
  o Many bugfixes

  Notes:

  Automatic channel reloads based on RPKI changes are enabled by default,
  but require import table enabled when used in BGP import filter.

  BIRD now uses bitmaps to keep track of exported routes instead of
  re-evaluation of export filters. That should improve speed and accuracy in
  route export handling during reconfiguration, but takes some more memory.

  Per-channel debug logging and some CLI commands (like 'show ospf neighbors')
  defaulting to all protocol instances lead to some minor changes in log and
  CLI output. Caution is recommended when logs or CLI output are monitored by
  scripts.

  this and previous version.

Version 2.0.3 (2019-01-05)
  o MRT table dumps (RFC 6396)
  o BGP Long-lived graceful restart
  o BGP: Optional import table (Adj-RIB-In)
  o BGP: Extend 'next hop keep' and 'next hop self' options
  o BGP: Improved VRF support

  o Filter: Support for VPN_RD sets
  o Filter: Make ifname attribute modifiable
  o Perf: Protocol to measure BIRD performance internally
  o More verbose error messages in config processing
  o Log file size limit / log rotation
  o Many bugfixes

  Notes:

  Export of routes to RS EBGP (route server) sessions from other sources than
  RS EBGP sessions was changed that ASN is no longer prepended to BGP_PATH in
  that case. The change does not affect regular BGP configurations or regular
  route servers that have only RS EBGP peers.

  For BGP route servers and route reflectors, the default value of option
  'next hop keep' was changed to a more appropriate value.

  Attributes for OSPF and Babel metrics are no longer reset when exported to
  these protocols and could be set anywhere in BIRD. As a result, OSPF metric is
  kept when a route is reannounced between OSPF instances. Also, when route is
  exported to OSPF with both ospf_metric1 and ospf_metric2 attributes it is now
  propagated as OSPF-E2 route instead of as OSPF-E1 route.

  Compiling BIRD with --enable-debug no longer automatically activates debug
  mode (-d option) nor local mode (-l option). Also, debug mode with output to
  file (-D option) no longer not forces foreground mode (-f option).

  The configure script now uses standard option --runstatedir, the old option
  --with-runtimedir is deprecated.

     - BGP: Parameters to option 'neighbor' extended.
     - BGP: Separate option 'interface' added.
     - BGP: Option 'start delay time' renamed to 'connect delay time'.

  Upgrade notes:

  For OSPF, there are deep internal changes, but user-visible changes
  are limited to log messages and minor changes in formatting of command
  output.

  For BGP, version 1.5.0 is essentially a minor release. There are two
  deprecated options ('start delay time' and 'route limit') and some
  minor formatting changes.

Version 1.2.0 (2010-01-05)
  o Implements OSPFv3 (IPv6 support for OSPF). Because the code is
    shared with OSPFv2 and there were deep changes in it, we suggest
    caution during upgrade to OSPF users. Some advanced features
    (like NSSA, vlinks and authentication) are not yet implemented.
  o Implements MRTdump - binary logging protocol compatible with other
    routing daemons. Only BGP part of MRTdump is yet implemented.
  o Changes default value of BGP attribute LOCAL_PREF from 0 to 100.
    Use 'default bgp_local_pref 0' BGP protocol option for the old
    behavior. The new value is suggested by RFC 4277.
  o Changes default mode of pipes from opaque to transparent.
    Use 'mode opaque' protocol option if the old behavior is needed.
    Opaque pipe mode is deprecated and might be removed in the future.
